Mango & Passionfruit Smoothie

You can buy gluten free oats from most health food stores or online. Oats are naturally gluten free, however most oats in Australia are processed on the same lines as barley and so contain gluten. Gluten free oats have been processed in a dedicated gluten free production facility.

Smoothies are often not the most nutritionally balanced drink. They are often high in fruit sugars and protein, but will lack fibre and healthy fats. Which means you are left hungry about an hour after drinking one for breakfast! To make sure your smoothie fills you up and is nutritionally balanced I recommend adding a tablespoon of oil, such as flaxseed oil. As well as adding an element of fibre, such as chia seeds.

Try making your own oat milk for this recipe, see below. It’s super easy and will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.

How to put this all together:

To make the oat milk, simply add all of the ingredients to a high-powered blender. Blend for 1 minute until the oats are completely broken down and you have a milky looking liquid. Strain through a nut milk bag into a sterile glass bottle. You can store this in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can keep the oat pulp and use this in baking.

To make your smoothie, simply add all of the smoothie ingredients to a high-powered blender. Blend for 1 minute until you have a smooth creamy drink. You may need to add another ¼ cup of oat milk to thin out the smoothie slightly. Enjoy!
